  • Divide fruit between 2 small, clear serving bowls or stemmed cocktail glasses.

  • Place egg yolks, sugar, and marsala into metal mixing bowl. Set over burner on low heat. Hold rim of bowl with a potholder. Whisk until mixture forms loose peaks, 7 or 8 minutes. Mixture should feel warm to the touch.

  • Spoon custard over the strawberries. Serve while custard is still warm.

Cook's Note:

Instead of placing the metal mixing bowl over low heat to whisk the custard, you can set the bowl over a pot of slowly simmering water.
